  • Description


    ​Family looking for help in January / February 2019!

    ​We live on a little farm southeast of Hamburg in the beautiful countryside.
    Our family of 3 is completed ​by 4 horses, 2 dog, several cats and 4 rabbits.

    ​We are working full time and can definitely use an extra pair of hands to help with daily chores.
    Additionally we need an extra pair of hands to help renovating my new flat and moving my stuff.

    ​​My family and I have travelled through Europe together and I have travelled on my own as well. Our native language is German, we speak English on a good, fluent level.

    We have had a few workawayers at our farm and they all loved it, with most we are still in close touch!

    Decent level of either English or German is required !​!!
